As revealed by Yahoo Sport FR, AS Monaco are extremely close to landing Japanese international Shinji Kagawa on loan until the end of the season from Borussia Dortmund, according to RMC.
Monaco are in advanced negotiations with BVB over a loan agreement that will not include an option to purchase. Kagawa has already given the green light for the deal to go ahead with the Principality side.
Now, the clubs must finalise the details…
Yahoo Sport FR believe that talks for this deal accelerated in the last 48 hours and that Monaco Vice President Vadim Vasilyev took control of negotiations, resulting in a positive conclusion at around 01:00 this morning (French time).
Kagawa is, according to this outlet, expected to arrive in the Principality today and join Monaco’s escape relegation operation.
Sky Germany believe that the deal will include an option to purchase, contrary to our colleagues in France.
